I used to sell the Glenn's dulcimers and banjos for them, but I never heard them play either instrument. I did meet and hear Edd Presnell, a fine instrument maker who lived very near Ray Hicks, the great teller of Jack Tales whom I recorded (C-14) before he became famous in the story-telling community.
I always admired the classic simplicity of the Glenns' dulcimers, and the extremely fine workmanship of all of their instruments. Presnell's were more elaborate and I was not drawn to them.
I would love to hear the Glenns' music. Where can one find "It Still Lives?" (Hey, Greenhaus, are you listening?)
